How I’m Going to Grow Twins Mommy + Free Checklist

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my new series on growing my blog.

How I'm Going to Grow TwinsMommy + Free Checklist

Twins Mommy is a new blog of mine and I want to chronicle how I’m going to grow my traffic, email list and my income.

I’ll be sharing with you the behind the scenes of running Twins Mommy, gaining readers and eventually making money.

Here’s a little backstory on my blogging experience.

Twins Mommy isn’t my only blog. My first blog is ElnaCain – a freelance writing site.

Over there I dish out tips on freelance writing and getting started with freelance writing. In addition, I have a course out for new writers.

I also own and manage two other blogs, but I’m not positioning them for passive income yet. My goal for those blogs is to increase traffic, but I’m not putting all my effort into that because I want to focus on this blog.

So, I’m not new to blogging, but I’m new to growing my blog and earning a passive income from my blog via the traditional methods like affiliate marketing, ads and sponsored posts.

I started Twins Mommy because I wanted to talk more about the work-at-home mom role.

I have twin toddlers and I also manage my home, the cooking and cleaning.

I want to share my experiences in growing my business and blog while taking care of little ones and I also want to help others do the same.

So whether you have twins, multiples or just one child, Twins Mommy can help you out 🙂

Starting Twins Mommy – How It Came Together

Mom life with twins!

Twins Mommy was “born” with the idea of sharing my life as a work at home mom. On my other site, I couldn’t really talk about this since a I have men, college students, grandparents, working ladies and moms as my audience.

So, Twins Mommy felt like a perfect new blog to start.

I was lucky enough to secure an aged domain.

I was deciding on names for this blog and found out that Twins Mommy was going to expire the next day. I knew this was the perfect name for my site since I wanted to talk more about my role as a mom to twins and trying to run a business.

I was able to register it without any problems.

For hosting I wanted to try something new.

Most of my other blogs are on a cloud server  – don’t ask me what that is since my husband set that all up – but since I intended to monetize Twins Mommy when I registered it,  I went with a shared hosting – SiteGround (so I can eventually do some affiliate marketing).

My freelance writing blog uses Bluehost and this is also another self-hosting plan I highly recommend to new bloggers and freelancers.

If you want to start a blog with me, I have a step-by-step tutorial on how to start a blog!

So far, I’m happy with my hosting and I haven’t had any glitches or slow response times.

Next, I picked a free theme – Adelle for WordPress.


I liked the free theme, but I wanted to do something a bit more modern, yet inviting for this blog.

My husband is a web developer so he designed the current theme, which is much more what I had envisioned for Twins Mommy. I’m still debating about the homepage design and color, but overall I’m super happy about it.

If you want help on what to do after you start a blog, make sure to check out my guide where I show you step-by-step how to set up your WordPress site with video tutorials.


So, let’s get started on how I’m going to grow my traffic.

1. On My Site

My site is pretty new. Not even a month old. Here’s a snapshot of my analytics:


As you can see, not much is happening. I only have five posts up and I’ve told my subscribers on my ElnaCain site about this new blog only once.

So, nobody really knows this blog exists.

I also noticed my bounce rate is high! Either my content isn’t very engaging or I don’t have a lot of content for people to go through. I’m hoping it’s the latter.

Here’s some of the first steps I took to start generating more traffic:

  • Decrease my bounce rate by putting in a related posts plugin. Hopefully readers will want to continue reading more posts on Twins Mommy.
  • Optimize my sharing buttons. Originally, I had too many sharing buttons. Now I just have the main three: Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. Right now those platforms seem to yield the most engagement.
  • Put in Comment Luv. This gives a little incentive for other bloggers to leave a comment on my blog and I hope this will generate more readers.

2. Develop a Pinterest Strategy


Let’s get real here. I’m in LOVE with Pinterest. I’ve been a Pinner for a while but stopped after having twins and had NO time to pin.

But, then I found you can use Pinterest for your business. Then I started watching webinars on how to effectively use Pinterest and my mind was blown 🙂

There are a lot of bloggers, freelancers and work-from-home moms pinning away and growing their traffic.

So, I’ve concentrated my efforts on Pinterest rather than Twitter or Facebook.

Here’s my big plan to use Pinterest to grow my traffic:

1. Grow My Pinterest Following

I noticed that the blogs with lots of traffic also have lots of followers on Pinterest. Like over 1k followers. Here’s how many I have:


616. Not bad, but I can definitely do better. My goal is to have at least a thousand followers by next month.

This is totally possible because I’m pinning more pins and pinning more often.

I know that the number of followers doesn’t reflect the number of people actually seeing my pins. So, I’ll be keeping an eye on my Pinterest analytics. Currently these are my stats:

pinterest analytics

It’s on the up and up and that’s a good thing.

2. Optimize My Pinterest Bio

From the webinars I watched about Pinterest I worked on optimizing my Pinterest bio with keywords.


I changed my title and added Entrepreneur, freelance writer + mom to twins.

Then in my bio I also mentioned where I blog and to grab my free course over on my ElnaCain blog.

Since I’m selling a course over on my ElnaCain site, I want to direct people to my free course as this ties in to my complete course.

So far, though, my Pinterest bio now has keywords in it making it easier for others to find me.

3. Brand My Pinterest Boards

I thought it would look nicer if I branded my business related boards. It adds a bit of cohesiveness and, well it just looks pretty 🙂


I have four rows of branded Pin boards. Another thing I did was add more business related boards so that I can pin more often.

I have a mix of work-at-home mom boards (like WAHM, Mom with twins, Taking care of twins and Work from home) and freelance writing boards.

I also have a group board, which, I think, is helping get my pins noticed more.

4. Automate My Pinning

I’m a busy work-at-home mom. I really don’t have time to pin. That’s why I decided to automate my pinning using Tailwind.

What’s nice is that it sets up a schedule to pin during optimum times, which turn out to be the most busiest times for me!

I’m using their free version and will monitor my following, repins and traffic back to my blog to see if I’ll go for a subscription. So far, it’s working and I’m happy.

But, I’m not leaving my strategy on auto-pilot. I’m also manually pinning and repinning other people’s content on a daily basis.

5. Be Pin-Centric on My Blog

Another thing I noticed with other blogs in this niche is how much they promote their Pinterest account or make their blog Pin-friendly.

I’ve definitely worked on my images for this blog. I’m branding them by creating a signature look – I hope you like! – and making sure to have my URL in every image.

I’m also putting my Pin image as the feature image on my post to let everybody know, hey, you can Pin me!

A new thing I added was a “follow me on Pinterest” widget on my homepage to encourage more people to follow me.

4. Grow My Email List

If you notice, I don’t have a sign up form on my blog yet. But, I plan to!

Since I want more traffic, a great way to do this is to make an email list. Right now, people come to my blog, read my post and then leave.

I have no way of connecting with them or reaching them. They may forget about my blog or remember my blog, but forget the URL.

I have mailing lists on some of my other blogs and I know how valuable a list can be. So, I want to start another list for this blog.

There will be two ways I’m going to promote my list:

  • Create a free incentive called a lead magnet –I’m not quite sure what this will be. Either a guide book to starting your own online business or something else related to working from home and being a mom.
  • Content upgrades – these are freebies you place in your blog post that relates to the blog post. I have my first content upgrade for Twins Mommy on this post!

I’ll be using OptinMonster for my lead magnet and content upgrades. I’m excited as I’m a writer for them and am really liking what I’m learning about their product.

I may promote my lead magnet on social media, but not sure how since my social media accounts are for my ElnaCain site and freelance writing business.

As for an email provider, I’m currently using MailChimp, but I’m growing out of that and need to switch to another provider that can accommodate my needs.

I’m debating on two providers – ActiveCampaign or Convert Kit. If you use one of these providers, please tell me in the comments what you like or don’t like about them.

My goal is to have 10,000 subscribers by the end of the year. It’s a big lofty goal for a brand new site, but you know the saying – go big or go home!

Currently I have 0 subscribers (because I haven’t started a list yet!).

5. Invest in Blogger Outreach

I’ve learned from over one year of active blogging that it’s the connections and networking you do that can really put your bog on the map.

Since this blog is brand new, I need to do a bit of legwork to let other work-at-home mom blogs or mommy blogs know I exist.

So, to do that I will share their content on Pinterest, comment on their blogs and follow them. I’ll also feature them or link to them in my blog posts, so I’m super excited to get to know all the other fabulous work-at-home mamas out there!

6. Monetize Twins Mommy

So, my end goal in all this is to earn some passive income and I’m excited for this to happen.

But, the first step is to grow my blog’s traffic and then I can start really working hard at monetizing it. For now, I plan to use affiliate marketing. So, I’ll recommend products I personally use – or have used – to my audience.

I don’t have a monetary goal for Twins Mommy since I can’t gauge how much traffic I’ll have month-to-month, but I plan to do income reports so that you can follow my blogging journey!

There You Have It

This is my grand plan to go from mom to mompreneur and now it’s in the works. But, don’t forget, that if you are doing the same, we are doing this together!

Let’s support each other in this! Leave a comment telling me your plan and if you support me, I’ll do the same.

I’ll be sharing my plan to grow my blog every month so keep a lookout for my progress:

Please Remember to Pin me!

Hey Elna, I love reading your post and indeed Pinterest has great potential.Reply to Shweta
Hi Elna, Going through the 3 months of growth posts you have. I’ve only seriously started Pinterest and Tailwind a few days ago. A couple of clicks here and there. I can see the potential in it. I’ll be using the boards and stuff you’ve included.Reply to Zak
Excellent post. Very useful! I’m going to get your tips to help continue building my email list. 🙌🏼Reply to Amparo
Hi! That’s great to hear!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna. I only started blogging in January because I’d wanted to get back into writing. Now I am starting to realise that perhaps audience building might be a good idea too! This article will come in handy, although I might not understand everything… and I’ll have to read it a few more times. We are never too old to learn though! H xReply to Hilde
Hey Hilde, That’s great to hear you started blogging in January! Congrats! Yes, building an audience turns your blog from a journal into a helpful place to serve your audience!Reply to Elna
This is awesome!!! Thank you for spelling it all out for us! 🙂Reply to Tiarra
Hi Elna thank you for your tips. I am interested in making lead magnets. Your posts are very helpfulReply to Latha
Hey Latha! Awesome! Have fun creating those lead magnets to grow your email list!Reply to Elna
Thank so much for sharing Elna. Yet another very helpful post of yours. I love reading your stuff. It’s also great to see your progress. 🙂Reply to Wendy
Hi Wendy! Thank you so much! So happy you found some tips to help you as a new blogger 🙂Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, End of my first month and still learning. No subscribers yet! I have joined a few facebook groups this week which is helpful b/c I found out my site wasn’t allowing comments…WHAT! Fixed that. Now I’m still trying to build an email list. I created a lead magnet but the graphics are great like yours. You said you wanted to use Optin Monster, so did you and what do you think of them? Should I try them? I’m leery about spending money b/c I haven’t monetized yet (duh, no subscribers, yet). But do you think it would be worth it to try them? Love your site! You’re quickly becoming my WAHM SHERO!Reply to DeShena
Hi DeShena! That’s great you are networking and getting to know other bloggers in Facebook! It’s up to you if you want to us OM. I later switched to Thrive and I like that too! I still use ConvertKit and like that as well! For new bloggers I suggest ConvertKit because it’s all-in-one!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna. Thank you so much for this. Am on both of your sites a lot at the moment as I look to both grow and develop my own personal blog and branch into paid writing work. I was a stay at home mum for 6 years but have spent the last 18 months wrangling with a return to work and have decided to be self-employed. I work as a lawyer but love to write and want to make it work (though my knowledge of social media etc right now is very limited). I have 3 young girls, 7, 5 and 4, so still demanding and lots to balance! Anyway, lots of common interests so I really love to follow you and very much appreciate all that you share xReply to Kerry
Hey Kerry! <3 Thank you for following both my blogs! I love that you have decided to be self-employed. This will be the best decision by far! It is challenging and takes time but the rewards are great!Reply to Elna
Great post! Thanks for all the info.Reply to Lauren
Hey Elna, I’ve followed your site for a while now and watched you grow! What great success. Thanks for all the amazing tips. I’m going to switch to comment luv by the end of the week. I work full time as a finance manager at a car dealer, so my time to blog gets VERY limited at certain times of the month. I really want to leave the car business and blog full-time!!! I’ve had my blog since December 2015, however I haven’t done much with it until recently. I’ve been trying to get more serious about blogging to leave the life draining business I’m in. Thanks for the encouragement!Reply to Shauna
Hey Shauna, You can do it! Thanks so much for being a loyal follower! Good luck and if you ever need help just email me [email protected]Reply to Elna
Elna, I’ve been looking for some great tips of blog growth and yours is the most detailed and helpful one I’ve found since I started blogging. Thanks so much for sharing! You’re right that we are in this together. ? I downloaded the checklist and can’t wait to read the next post!Reply to Taylor
Taylor! Aww thanks so much! <3 So happy you got the checklist!Reply to Elna
your growth is excellent! I really struggle with blogger outreach and remembering to go and comment on peoples posts. I read all the time and save on Pinterest but taking the time to comment and talk to people is a great reminder to stop, slow down and engage your brain. I suffer from medical conditions so my brain isn’t always fully functioning which is why I favour the mindless tasks but it’s good to get a reminder about outreach. Lots of luck to you 🙂Reply to Claire
Let’s just say that I haven’t read your blog yet because it’s so pretty I scrolled all the way to the bottom and read a few comments and they got me so excited to read the blog I can’t wait. Talk about creating suspense.Reply to Mel
Mel! LOL! 🙂 I hope I don’t disappoint you! I have been charting my blog growth for a year now and I’m continuing to try new things and share my experiences! Blogging isn’t easy, but it’s highly rewarding and totally worth it! Thanks again and email me any time you have a question!Reply to Elna
Great outline showing all of the work involved. This stuff doesn’t just happen overnight!Reply to Anna
Thanks! And yes, it doesn’t happen overnight or several months later! It’s slow and steady, right??Reply to Elna
Thank you for your helpful and genuine advice. I’ve been reading your articles for Pinterest and already I’ve gained new followers and seen a 600% increase in people reached. My site is new so you have really helped me learn what to focus on with it.Reply to Androlucious
That’s great! So happy your site is growing.Reply to Elna
Hey Elna! First off, I wanted to reach out and send a huge THANK YOU. I love your transparent insight and how you give real world advice! You literally have your own space in notebook of implementations. I appreciate you and your help that you make so readily available! Please never stop!Reply to Libby
Hi Libby! Thanks so much. I hope my transparent will help other bloggers for sure! Thanks for the support 🙂Reply to Elna
Hello! I’m a new blogger and new mommy and enjoying the world of networking currently. Thank you for sharing you knowledge and information with the rest of us and nice “meeting” you!Reply to Brianna
Hi Brianna! You’re welcome! Thanks for stopping by. I hope my growth series will help your new blog generate more traffic!Reply to Elna
Great post! I am going to be going through more of your posts!Reply to Heather
Hey Heather! Thanks so much. I’m glad you are enjoying my blog growth series!Reply to Elna
i am as well as both blogs you have mentioned!Reply to heather
Elna, I am SO excited to watch your progress from the very beginning! I am a photographer, but in the early stages of transforming my website into more a photography blog. Looking forward to watching you grow and learning some tips! JenReply to Jen
Hey Jen! Thanks so much. I’m already at my fourth month and happy with the progress – although it’s a little slow…I’m still trying to understand the SEO strategies to help me grow my blog. For now, it’s social media that’s bringing my traffic.Reply to Elna
Great blog! I intend on starting one soon. Question: How do you set up every area of your blog (work at home / blogging / entrepreneur/ etc…) as all having different blog posts? In WordPress from what I can tell you can only have one “Blog” (which can be your home page) and then all the other sections have to be “Pages” Not sure if my questions makes sense. Any who, congrats on a great start to your blog and yes I say your “brand” is a super neat-o … Best of Luck and I look forward catching up on all your blog posts 🙂Reply to Claudia
Hey Claudia, My menu items are just categories and I put my blog post in the most appropriate category.Reply to Elna
Hi! We do the same thing, but in different languages 😉 My blog is also about being a work at home mom, and I’m also trying to monetizeing it. Will love to see what you’re doing and be part of your new community, cause yeah, i’ll be signing up. 😉 Hugs from an Argentinian in Brazil!Reply to Nora
Hola chica! I wish I knew more Spanish! I grew up to my mom only speaking Spanish but I seem to have lost it early on. That’s great you’re in the same niche as me, but in another language. Thanks for signing up!Reply to Elna
You are inspiring- I’m working on a course myself but researching the delivery method that doesn’t have a monthly fee…Reply to Dana
Dana! That’s great. I see you blog about farm life. What a fun niche! As for a delivery method, I’m not sure what’s out there. My course on my other site is self-hosted and we use a membership plugin. I know there’s Teachable too and that may not require a monthly fee. Good luck!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna! Love the design of your blog and your plan to grow it! I’m in the same boat myself- just started a blog and I have twins as well! Mine aren’t even a year yet, though. I’ll be reading along to see what I can expect as they grow!Reply to Aubrey
Hi Aubrey! Thank so much. Even though this is called Twins Mommy, it looks like my focus is on blogging tips and business tips for moms who want to be mompreneurs! But, of course, I do write about my twins occasionally. Actually, I started writing for Twiniversity and that’s exciting. I’ll be sure to share that link with my readers soon!Reply to Elna
Hi, Elna! This is wonderful information for freelancing newbies like me! I am transitioning from SAHM to WAHM with two little ones (ages 4 & 2). I love being able to follow your lead and know that it’s possible to be a successful freelance writer and mother. I had never heard of CommentLuv or the Mail Chimp alternatives, so this is great! I just signed up for Mail Chimp; may I ask why you’re shifting away? I look forward to seeing your blog’s progress and being inspired to do the same with mine!Reply to Terra
Hey Terra! Thanks so much for stopping by! That’s great news you are wanting to work from home. Have you decided what service you want to provide? Or are you doing something different like open up an Etsy shop or affiliate marketing and sponsored posts on your blog? Sorry if I’m super nosy. CommentLUv is awesome! I see you used it in your comment. I like using it when I visit other blogs because of that valuable backlink. But I’ve been noticing a lot of mommy bloggers don’t use it. Not sure why? About email, MailChimp is great, it’s what I use and have used heavily for over a year. I have another business ( and I have sales funnels that would be easier to run using an email provider with better marketing automation. But I make do with MailChimp, and for the average blogger, it’s perfect. And it makes sense for me to consolidate one platform and learn it well.Reply to Elna
I’m focusing on B2B copywriting on the site and my art related blog and portfolio are on a subdomain, Currently (who knows what the future will bring), I have the first one set up like a business card for potential clients. Not sure what I should do with the blog there other than keep it updated to showcase my writing. The artist site used to be just a showcase for my artwork and blurbs about upcoming exhibitions or my work being published. All about me, me, me! I’d like to make that one more focused on promoting creativity (especially in children) and empowering other creative people to build their dreams (creative consultant, coaching, designing studio spaces for home and schools, public speaking, etc.). Affiliate marketing could be a way to go there, since I do have some products and tools I love and would want to share with others. So basically, make the site less about me personally, more on how I can help others be more creative and inspired. Whoa! Hope you made it through my novella there!Reply to Terra
Hi Terra! Nice! I’m also a copywriter and write mostly for B2B and B2C companies/bloggers. I think keeping your blog for your copywriting services is a must. It’s a great place for your portfolio and to direct prospects. My writer website is I really focused on my ideal customer and am loving the whole new look. I think you are on the right track with your art blog. I would do more things to help other aspiring creatives. Good luck!Reply to Elna
Thank you very much for sharing all this information! I saw your post in Blog + Biz BFFs on Facebook and I will definetely follow your tips. I’ve downloaded Commentluv, I hope I will have more visitors and comments soon! I love your Pinterest boards too! 🙂Reply to Ana
Hi Ana, Thanks so much! Yes, I’m excited to grow TwinsMommy. It’s a big process and I only hope it ramps up by the fall 🙂Reply to Elna
I absolutely love this! Thank you so much for sharing your plan!! I “plan” to follow your plan, as I’m new to blogging and really feel lost! I am printing out the checklist and am going to start applying your ideas. I appreciate you doing this! I think your blog will be a huge success! Keep it up!Reply to Kari
Hi Kari! Thank you so much. I do have an update so be sure to see what other things I’m doing to growing my blog. I’m excited to build a tribe of loyal followers!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna I found your blog today through The Bad Ass Business Mum’s site. I have just started a blog – four whole blog posts, so you are way ahead of me 😉 Looking at your list, we have similar plans. I’ve started using ConvertKit. I chose it because it’s been recommended over and over by successful bloggers I follow, specifically because it is designed for bloggers. I am still new to it but have set up a form and a sequence without any problems. The only issue so far seems to be that the forms are overly ‘pretty’. I am trying to learn basic CSS and HTML so I can play a little with this. With a web developer hubby, that shouldn’t be an issue for you. Look forward to following your progress.Reply to Jackie
Hi Jackie, Thanks for letting me know where you came from! I tried out ConvertKit, but I’m still not sure if I’ll use it. Right now, I’m trying out Drip and I’m actually liking it. But I know, most of my viewers are using ConvertKit and I plan to have some tutorials with email providers and will most likely use CK for that. That’s great you started a blog! And hey, you have four posts up 🙂 It’s a start. Keep putting out content and promoting it. And if you want, follow me as I grow my blog 🙂Reply to Elna
I’m just starting out with my blog The Merry Momma, and I found this list to be SO helpful! I can’t wait to see what other useful tidbits you have to share!Reply to Lisa
Hey Lisa! Love your blog design. Can’t wait to go and read some of your posts. Thanks so much. I’m gearing up for my blog growth update tomorrow! Super excited and can’t wait to share all my tips and what I’m doing to my new tribe of mama bosses!Reply to Elna
I’m a grandmother of twin girls 5 months old! Great info here on this post for new bloggers or bloggers wanting to expand their reach. I jumped in here from Blogging Boost. Cudos!Reply to Janet
Hey Janet! That’s great. Grandmother is welcome here to my blog 🙂 If you have twins then you know how life is. Thanks for letting me know how you found out about me and glad you liked the info. I’m excited to share my results after a month tomorrow!!Reply to Elna
This is so helpful! I built my blog up a bit, went on hiatus, and now am basically starting from scratch, so I need these kinds of tips. Thank you for the great post! 🙂 findingthewardrobe.comReply to Rachel
Hey Rachel! That’s great to hear you are persevering! Let’s do this together eh! 🙂Reply to Elna
Very fun! Love your Vibe. I’m a mom of two under Two well the second is 2 and a half so yeah I feel you, it feels like twins sometimes. Great checklist, thank you.Reply to Ashley
Ashley! Yes, I’m sure you can definitely relate to what I go through every day. Like know, the house is quiet, which means only one thing – the twins are getting into something they shouldn’t! So glad you picked up the checklist. I hope yo stick around for my next update (next week) as I have some AWESOME news to share about my blog growth.Reply to Elna
Hi! I came here as a result of your reply to another blogger on Facebook. This is such a great article, thanks so much for sharing!Reply to Cally
Thanks Cally! I hope you stick around and grow your blog with me! I have some great news for my upcoming growth report!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Thanks for all of this great info! I’m looking forward to watching you grow this blog. I’m in the early stages of creating my new blog too, so this information could not have come at a better time. Since Pinterest is part of your overall growth strategy, I recommend adding a plug-in that makes it easy for people to pin your images when they hover over them. I went to try to pin your main graphic by clicking on it and couldn’t. It’s such a common feature nowadays that it threw me off for a sec when it wasn’t there. Don’t worry, I was till able to pin it using my Pinterest browser extension!Reply to Tasha
Thanks Tasha! Thanks for telling me about this. I have sharing buttons on the bottom of each of my posts but nothing when you hover over the image. I’ll look into that. I personally don’t like to use a lot of plugins since, when one updates it like crashes my whole site! I hate updates. Anyways, thanks so much for wanting to follow along. I’m always looking for other new bloggers as I want to support them during this fun journey.Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Love this idea, and I am so excited to see your progress. As a new blogger, I work outside the home currently and homeschool. However, I will be losing my job sometime soon (as in the doors are closing but they haven’t told us when yet. fun times lol) I would love to learn from you.Reply to Jen
Oh Hey Jen (again :-)) That’s too bad about losing your job. It’s good, though, that you are being proactive and trying to find other sources of income. I’ve been a freelance writer for a little over a year now and absolutely love it. I get to stay home with the twins, care for them and own my own biz! And now with TwinsMommy, I’m looking forward to seeing how this will shape up with monetizing it!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna. I just want to thank you for such an insight. I dont have kids. Work with them though very closely so am always interested in mums thoughts to help improve my work ethic, I digress though. I just wanted to say this blog sounds great on first reading it. I want to start a blog myself. Have plenty of ideas and am an avid blog reader. Still building up the courage to do so though. Your blog here has given me some great insight and I look forward to reading more from you on this venture..hopefully to follow suit in the near future.Reply to Richelle
Hi Richelle! Thanks so much. And no, you don’t need to have twins or kids even, to enjoy and get value from my posts 🙂 Enjoy the posts and if you want to be notified just click on my content upgrade at the end of my posts.Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, you are doing great. I like your work so much. I read many times that you are mom of twins. But you are doing great. I have a daughter who is almost two years old one. Sometimes I get up 10 times while working. ? RahelaReply to Rahela
Hey Rahela, Thanks so much. Yes having twins is a lot of work! But I also think I take on many projects. Hey, I like being a mompreneur 🙂 Thanks for your support.Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Wow, there is just so much information here on your plan. I particularly like your branded Pinterest board covers. I haven’t seen that before, but I like it. It is a really clever idea. I shall watch your progress with interest Have a great week. JoReply to Jo
Hi Jo! Thanks so much for your support. I like my Pinterest board covers too 🙂 I got that tip from I think Dre over at TheBrandedSolopreneur. I’m excited at how this will all turn out. I’ve never tried to monetize my blog in the traditional way since I’m a freelance writer. I just offered a service. But, I know there are a lot of bloggers and mommy bloggers that are doing it and are successful so I want to see if I can make a dent too! Thanks for stopping by!Reply to Elna
Oh my gosh, Elna! Where do you find all the time? Are you giving up the other 2 sites? I would really like to know your routine! Good luck in the new site. Love the layout and colors! BrenReply to Brenda
Hey Brenda! Thanks for coming over here to my new blog. I’m sure busy but I type fast and come up with topics in a jiffy. This niche and freelance writing is right up my alley so I can produce content fast. I’m not giving up my other sites – and FreelancerFAQs (oh and Two of those sites have guest contributors so I don’t have to produce content as frequently. And my ElnaCain site is my little baby so I have great plans for that site too 🙂 Thanks so much for your compliment! My hubby and I are working hard at developing a brand and color palette. It’s coming together.Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, Great insights. I love your idea of not settling into just one thing and hustling towards success. I have been following you since quite some time and all I can say is your effort gets noticed. I with you get the desired traffic and monetization here in this blog as well as your other blogs. Thanks. -SwadhinReply to Swadhin
Hey Swadhin, Thanks for your support! This will be the first time I monetize my blog the traditional way. I’m excited to see how this progresses!Reply to Elna
You’re most welcome Elna. I know you’ll rock in here as well 🙂Reply to Swadhin
Thanks for sharing this wonderful post. Found your link post on Twitter. Your Pinterest boards looks great.Reply to Joy
Thanks Joy! Glad you liked my post and found me on Twitter 🙂Reply to Elna
Congrats on the new blog. I am a mom, but my son is 26 so I doubt I will be a frequent visitor to TwinsMommy. Lol. But it is wonderful what you’re doing! I wish you the best!Reply to Lorraine
Thanks Lorraine! You’re still a mom no matter how old your child is 🙂 But I get you!Reply to Elna
Hi Elna, I love the over-the-shoulder view that you’re giving people as you develop this new blog… neat idea! Love your Pinterest board covers, too. 🙂 And… would you look at that! Looks like you’ve got CommentLuv installed now. As you publish these progress updates, would you consider including an income report, or no? I haven’t been brave enough yet to publish my own… okay, let me rephrase that. I haven’t had the time or desire to. LOL But I’m always interested to check out what other work-from-home solopreneurs are up to. May I ask, why did you launch this new blog? Is there a long-term strategy to monetize it, or…? Looks great so far! Nice job! BrentReply to Brent
Hey Brent! Knew you would appreciate the solopreneur journey. Yes, for this blog I’ll do income reports. I’ll just report what this blog will earn and not include my other projects. It will be the first time I’m doing the whole make money blogging thing and I’m excited. Glad you like my Pinterest board covers. They are quite snazzy if I do say so myself 🙂Reply to Elna
Just re-read your intro. Yes, it indeed looks like you intend to create some passive income through this blog. Nice.Reply to Brent
